Tracks: SOME MINOR NOISE – Deadhead
Things have been kind of quiet on the SOME MINOR NOISE front as of late – the Toronto electro noise-pop duo’s last real online commentary was regarding a gig during Pride celebrations earlier in the summer – though they broke the silence in late August with a quick comment hinting at some sort of new track offering.
That hint came to fruition last week with SMN vocalist Jane Void and producer Wayne Doe dropping Deadhead, the sole accompanying comment being “new song. welcome.”
Deadhead maintains their MIDI-80s video game -inspired melodies, though a much more laid back feel is persistent throughout this number compared to their earlier higher energy tracks.
Their YouTube commentary also includes a reference to “two hearts [beating] until one breaks”: whether that’s entirely a direct reference to the lyrics of Deadhead (Grateful Dead fans?) or their prescient assessment of your state-of-being after you hear the track is uncertain; we’ll leave that determination up to you.
